A white and radiant floor

A white and radiant floor

After a comprehensive reform, this Central Madrid apartment -of 90 m2- It can boast today of being very bright and having a practical distribution.

The Ivory Escapes company and the execution, C & C Construcciones, were in charge of the project and decoration, with Begoña Espinosa in front. The fruit of this collaboration is a modern and sophisticated interior design, perfect for the activity to which Ivory Escapes is dedicated; the rental of flats for short stays in Madrid.

Of the original distribution, with a corridor that gave way to small rooms on both sides of it, there is nothing left; The structure of the house was reinforced to unify rooms and achieve wider spaces. The new living room, with 40 m2 and three balconies facing the street, became the center of the house by incorporating the kitchen and dining room. With the windows restored and the walls blank, the contrast with the dark floor emphasizes such clarity. With the reform, in addition, two bedrooms and two bathrooms were created.

In one of the rooms the rest area shares space with the bathroom. The circulation between them is very fluid, since there are no doors, but a central partition that divides the room and was designed to make the surface profitable. Towards the bed it has a niche that is used as a bedside table and towards the bathroom, it houses a built-in wardrobe.

When lifting this partition, the difficulty of achieving an optimal distribution, conditioned by two windows, was successfully overcome. At the same time, the room follows the tendency of placing the closet outside the rest area, to create a dressing room of greater or lesser capacity, and to place the washbasin front near the bed, as a dressing table. The decoration of the bedroom bets on the white that characterizes the rest of the house, with pink and green brushstrokes on the bedding to create a warmer atmosphere.

In the bathroom, a black tiled wall breaks the chromatic unit with the aim of highlighting the presence of a classic style free bathtub.
